13     eggdrop in version 1.5.xx. Further down the file is changes made from the
14     1.3.xx to the 1.4.xx version of eggdrop.
15 fabian 1.2
16 fabian 1.3 Alot of things have changed in this version so at a minimum read the
17     UPDATES1.5 and BOTNET text files. UPDATES shows whats been added and fixed
18     along the way. BOTNET gives a comprehensive step by step guide on linking
19     bots and the new bot flags.
20 fabian 1.2
21 fabian 1.3 CAUTION:
22 fabian 1.2
23 fabian 1.3 1. Before you start the bot for the first time BACKUP your
24     userfile if this is an upgrade from a previous version.
25    
26     2. DON'T USE YOUR OLD CONFIG FILE.. MAKE A NEW ONE.........
27    
28     Changes made to Eggdrop 1.5.xx from Eggdrop1.4.xx
29 fabian 1.2
30     !CHANNELS
31 fabian 1.3
32     Support for IRCNET !channels was added to eggdrop. Also this
33     might be still a bit buggy, it should work basically. We
34     appreciate bug reports!
35 fabian 1.2
36     ASYNCHRONOUS DNS MODULE
37 fabian 1.3
38     Eggdrop 1.5.1 is shipped with a new module, the dns module. It
39     replaces those old dns-lookups performed by eggdrop which could
40     halt the whole bot during a time-out. We also added a new tcl
41     command 'dnslookup', so scripts can look up IP's and hostname now
42     asynchronously, too.
43 fabian 1.2
44     +/-NODESYNCH
45 fabian 1.3
46     This new channel setting replaces the old 'allow-desync' setting
47     from global to channel functionality. This setting is usefull if
48     you use some kind of chanserv or if you don't care about your
49     channel being desnych.
50 fabian 1.2
51     NICK LENGTH
52 fabian 1.3
53     To support longer nicknames as some irc servers do (dalnet I
54     think) a settings was added for this one (nick-len).
55 fabian 1.2
56     PENALTY CALCULATION
57 fabian 1.3
58     Eggdrop calculates penalty points on IRCNET now, so it won't
59     flood itself off anymore.
60 fabian 1.2
61     SHARE MODULE
62 fabian 1.3
63     Share module got a new setting now (override-bots) which allows
64     hub bots to override the leafs bot setting (botadress, telnet
65     port and password). Please note, that this won't work with a 1.4
66     or even 1.3 bot.
67 fabian 1.2
68     TCL COMMANDS
69 fabian 1.3
70     * All three commands to add stuff to the queus (puthelp, putserv
71     and putquick) support the '-next' parameter now which pushes data
72     to the front of the queues.
73     * An command to calculate md5 checksums was added (md5).
74     * To support the new asynch dns module, the command 'dnslookup'
75     was added.
76 fabian 1.2
77     TRAFFIC ACCOUNTING
78 fabian 1.3
79     Eggdrop counts the whole traffic which it generates and receives
80     through irc,botnet and dcc now. You can access these statistica
81     via the dcc command '.traffic'. Please note, that the counter
82     gets reset every time a restart is done.
83 fabian 1.2
84     TRANSFER / FILESYS MODULE
85 fabian 1.3
86     The filesys and transfer modules have changed completely. Both
87     can handle now unlimited filename lengths and description sizes.
88     Incomplete downloads from the bot can be resumed now.
89     The db format of the filesys module was also changed to remove
90     the limits imposed by the old format. There's nothing special for
91     you to do as the old db is automatically converted to the new
92     format when you first access it. You won't be able to downgrade
93     to older versions after this though, so maybe you'll want to make
94     a backup first.
95    
96     Changes made to Eggdrop 1.4.xx from Eggdrop1.3.xx
97    
98     SHARING
99    
100     Sharing has changed a little. You will notice that a resync
101     buffer is kept for share bots when they disconnect. This allows
102     for them not to have to send the entire userfile again when they
103     reconnect. This is a much more effient approach to syncing the
104     user files.
105    
106     BOTFLAGS
107    
108     Bot flags have changed. It is recommended that you read the
109     BOTNET document to learn more about linking bots. Major changes
110     in how you configure a passive and aggressive bot.
111    
112     USERFLAGS
113    
114     User flags have changed. You still have the basic flags but
115     others have been added. Some changes to this are that if someone
116     has a global +n they will automatically be given all the global
117     flags available. You will also notice there are no more capital
118     letters; each flag has its own unique letter. An example is the B
119     flag, in previous versions, it stood for a botnet master. The new
120     flag is t. For more information on these changes, see the .help
121     whois for a list of all flags. 1.3.24 introduces a new flag for
122     +stopnethack procedure flexibility: +w.
123    
124     LANGUAGES
125    
126     Almost everthing the bot says now is in language file. This
127     should allow the bot to be more versatile for other people that
128     do not speak english. As soon as we start getting the
129     translations in there will be a directory on ftp.eggheads.org
130     that will contain ready to use language files. Look for it real
131     soon.
132    
133     COMMANDS
134    
135     .voice and .devoice commands where added in dcc chat. This will
136     voice a user on a channel if the bot is oped. Likewise for the
137     .devoice command.
138     .email is now support in userinfo1.0.tcl so if you want emails to
139     work, use this :)
